Colon Cleansing for Candida


Have you ever done a colon cleanse? What were your results? I had seen pictures where the sludge lining the intestines comes out in disgustingly large, long pieces. I had never had that experience…until I used this colon cleansing method. It really works! And it is so much more cost effective than buying expensive supplements that may or may not work.

When I first researched this method, one source recommended following the routine for 2-3 weeks, another for 3 months. I recently read from a third source that recommended 10 months. Wow! I know that even 3 months seems like a very long time! But, since I had done 3 months and later experienced a set back, I am inclined to believe that 10 months is a practical goal, especially if your Candida is severe.

What you need

bentonite clay or green clay
vitamin C powder (optional)
liquid stevia (optional)
Pint or quart sized jar w/lid
Filtered water (reverse osmosis)

How it works

The clay will draw toxins out of the body. The fiber will cling to the intestinal wall “scrubbing” the bad bacteria from your gut. Capryllic acid is an anti-fungal that will work in conjunction with the clay and fiber by “punching holes” in the fungus in your intestines.

This should be taken on an empty stomach. Take it first thing in the morning or at least 2 hours after a meal. Don’t eat for an hour after taking the mixture.

I’ve read that you will get better results using liquid clay and liquid capryllic acid. But, these are more expensive than the powdered and capsule varieties. Since I am doing this on a budget, I am not using the liquid forms, but I am still getting very good results.

How do I know? The evidence can clearly be seen in what I am eliminating. I don’t want offend by going into too much graphic detail, so lets just say that I am often amazed by what I am eliminating!

Getting Started: Go Slow

When I started out taking the recommended 1 tablespoon each of clay and fiber in one cup of water, I had a lot of stomach gurgling, more constipation, and eventually a pretty severe die off reaction. I then stopped taking it for a few weeks.

I later read on “Whole New Mom” that she considered stomach gurgling a sign that the war on bad bacteria was working, so I decided to get back on the bentonite clay and psyllium husk fiber routine. But this time I started at 1 teaspoon each of clay and fiber and gradually worked my way back up to a tablespoon of each. Much better!

How it’s Done

I like to prepare the mixture in a pint or quart sized mason jar. It easier to mix without using utensils. You should never use metal with clay. It’s ok to use plastic with dry powdered clay, but not with hydrated clay. Wooden utensils are an acceptable option, but no utensils are best.

When using powdered clay, it’s best to allow the clay to soak in water for 6 to 12 hours. I prepare my morning dose before going to bed and my evening dose after I have taken the morning dose.

  • Pour 1 cup filtered water into a pint or quart sized jar.  Sprinkle 1 to 3 teaspoons of bentonite or green clay over the top of the water.  The amounts will be 1 tablespoon, but start with 1 tsp and work your way up to minimize detox reactions.
  • Allow the clay to set in the water for 6 to 12 hours.
  • Add 1 teaspoon vitamin C powder and (8) drops of stevia in this mixture for flavor (optional). Shake to mix.
  • Get 2-3 capryllic acid capsules ready. You’ll want to take a total of 6 capsules per day, but you can work your way up to this.
  • Add 1 to 3 teaspoons psyllium husk fiber to your clay water in the mason jar. Start with 1 teaspoon and work your way up to 3 teaspoons. Put the lid on the jar quickly, shake it up and drink it down as quickly as you can taking the capryllic acid capsules as you drink. It’s important to do this quickly because the mixture will become very thick the longer the psyllium has to absorb water.
  • Add a little more filtered water to the jar after drinking, shake it up and drink what’s left of the mixture.
  • Clean the jar and lid with water, then get your next dose of clay water ready.
  • Do not use metal spoons with the clay!

  1. Eating Low carb is something I will probably have to do the rest of my life. I do eat brown rice, red or gold potatoes and sweet potatoes. The red and gold potatoes are great for the liver.

    I have never done this particular cleanse, but have done many, many over the years. I continue to cleanse, even when I am well. Speaking of set backs. I think you will have set backs for a very long time. It is just the nature of candida.

    I seen in one of your posts, you have an enema bucket. I still use the bag and normally clean mine with grapefruit seed extract. That will kill about anything.

    • Hi Terry, I agree, I will likely have to stay low carb the rest of my life. Currently even rice and potatoes are too much starch for me. I look forward to the day when I can add them back into my diet. Yes, it does seem that once we have had Candida we are more susceptible to setbacks.

      I have heard of using grapefruit seed extract for cleaning the enema equipment. Recently I began opening a couple of probiotic capsules into my coffee enemas. They tend to leave a slimy film on the surfaces they contact, so that is one of the main reasons I wanted an enema bucket. Besides, my enema bag was getting worn out from all the use it had been through :-)
